According to the Giving USA Foundation, although charitable donations increased in 2013 from the previous year, some organizations such as educational, arts, humanities and health were up, while churches were down.

However, the annual report also found that while churches received $105 billion in gifts, more than any other organization, their share is the lowest percentage of the total giving of $335 billion for over forty years.

The report also found that most of the donations that were given to churches came from the lower income groups, while the most affluent Americans tend to donate to universities, hospitals and the arts.

According to the report, this is the fourth straight year that giving has increased, and if it continues, it may reach the pre-recession total giving figure in one year of $347.5 billion.

Patrick Rooney, associate dean of the Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy, who partnered with Giving USA in the study, said that many wealthy Americans remember who is responsible for who they are today and consequently give to their alma mater.
